Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves. Carl Jung 

I use an integrative approach (psychodynamic therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, Solution-focused therapy, Existential therapy, etc.) to help my clients find solutions and face challenges that negatively impact their lives. My experiences have made me equipped to work with adults struggling with behavioural disturbances related to depression, anxiety (social anxiety, panic attacks, stress), relationship issues (familial, romantic), trauma, abuse, suicide risk, self-harm, and life/developmental transitions.

Our first session together will focus on building a safe space to figure out your needs and clarify your therapeutic goals. My objective for us is to develop a deeper understanding of who you are, what brought you to therapy, your history, your struggles, and your goals moving forward. In our first session, I will answer all your potential questions and concerns about the process of psychotherapy.  My hope is to facilitate understanding, empowerment, and strategies through an open shared experience in therapy.

I hold a Masters degree in Counselling Psychology from the University of Ottawa, where I am completing my thesis on student adaptation. I am bilingual (French & English). I do ongoing education through online counselling seminars. Over my professional career, I have held counselling roles and support in a variety of community settings, including such as the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre, Bruyère Geriatric Hospital, Ottawa Family Services and Planned Parenthood Ottawa.

I truly believe that by unpacking our past and exploring how it relates to our present lives, we can unlock a future that promotes a healthy mental well-being.
